Loca Bokeh

Hello and Welcome!!!

I wanted to share with you a technique that I know is up and around,
but it's my first time to play with it, so I have a step by step of what I did.

The technique is called Bokeh,
which the definition of this word is as follows:
'the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens'

So here's my take on this, and of course I had to use my watercolors!

First I taped down two pieces of watercolor paper 
so I could get two done at the same time.
Yes, sometimes I actually do think ahead! LOL!!!

 I use the blue masking tape and it is for delicate surfaces.
I have not had a problem with this ripping my paper...yet.

So I then wet the two pieces of paper with clean water
and one I used a purple and orange watercolor paint,
and the other I used two different colors of blue.
I also took the colors and hit my brush on top of the paper so it would splatter.

I then waited for them to dry...
who am I kidding, I am way too impatient and used my heating tool to dry them!  LOL!!!

I then took a piece of acetate and ran it through my die cutting machine
with various sized circle dies to make a stencil for the next step.

I took my white ink pad and a dauber and inked the stencil all over the page.
There is the bokeh technique...use it often it is a great background.
Saying that...I decided to use it as a background.

This little Wild Rose bunny and butterfly stamp was colored
in watercolor pencils.

I then rounded the corners and added it to the bokeh background.
Then I added both to a blue cardstock base and there you have it!

I think it came out very cute...what do you think?
Have you tried this technique...share with me!!!
